In Harnett County 5,812,000 Opioid pills were dispensed to Harnett residents in 2017.

Opioid overdose is more common in counties where more opioid prescriptions are dispensed (NC Medical Journal 2017 ).

Opioids (such as hydrocodone, oxycodone, codeine and morphine) are not right for everyone. They can have some very serious side effects.

Every patient should ask questions when getting a new prescription.

This is especially important when your doctor, dentist or other health care professional prescribes you an opioid.

A large percentage of people who will become addicted to opioids will still have their first exposure through a lawful medical prescription.

Ask your health care provider questions BEFORE taking opioids.
